These “suspected rebels” are, you guessed it, jihadists. Note also the targeting of civilians: justified in Kashmir as in Israel by stipulations in Islamic law that forbid the killing of non-combatants unless they are perceived to be aiding the war effort in some way.

A GRENADE attack on a crowded tourist restaurant and other weekend violence in Indian-controlled Kashmir killed seven people, including two tourists, and injured at least 47 others.
Police said suspected rebels lobbed a grenade into a popular restaurant in Pahalgam, a holiday resort in India’s Jammu-Kashmir state, killing four people and injuring 25 others, mostly tourists. …
Earlier on Saturday, a hand grenade thrown by a suspected Islamic rebel at an army vehicle in a border town missed its target and wounded 20 civilians, four of them critically, police said.
The blast occurred in Handwara, a town close to the Line of Control, which divides Kashmir between India and Pakistan.
Police blamed the attack on Islamic militants fighting for Kashmir’s independence from India or its merger with neighbouring Pakistan.
